The family in 1861

www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7FX-RQR

The family in 1871
RG10/1841/F32/p20
Church Street, Attleborough, Wayland

William Clowes 38 Chemist
Charlotte Clowes wife 37
Mary Clowes dau 9
Florence Clowes dau 8
William Clowes son 6
Albert Clowes son 4
Ethel Clowes dau 2
Hester Clowes dau 11 mths

I'm not sure why they called another son William as the William Cubitt Clowes born 1859 is still alive.
He is a boarder with a Benjamin Rowe, schoolmaster in St Giles, Norwich, presumably at a private school. Ref is RG10/1816/F66/p24

In 1881 William, Charlotte and family are still in Attleborough but I cannot find William born 1859 at all.

Thanks you for the details.

There is another tree that has this:

William was born on 11 Aug 1859 in Attleborough, Norfolk UK. He died on 17 Mar 1912 in Brisbane.
Age at death points to 1859.

William Church Clowes is buried at Tingalpa Cemetery, Brisbane. The headstone says: 1 June 1904, aged 71 years.

His son William Cubitt born 23 February 1854, christened 10 October 1860 at St Mary's Church, Attleborough. Died 17 March 1912, Brisbane, Qld - probably the same one on your tree? His baptism was from the Attleborough Baptism project. .
